The Next Generation 2 George Weasley heard a loud bang coming from upstairs. He bounded up the stairs and burst open his son's bedroom door.
Fred Weasley the Second was on the floor, a firecracker in his hand. He was covered from head to foot in ashes, and his bronze hair was standing on end. He glanced nervously at his father.
"Freddy what on earth are you doing?" George exclaimed.
"Well " Fred began. "I was just playing around with this firecracker to see if I could make it do something cool."
George chucked. "You're just like your deceased uncle and I when we were kids," he said. "Your grandmother is sure going to like this." He sighed, remembering good times. "Maybe when you're older you can take over the shop?" He asked Fred.
His son's eyes widened in excitement. "Yeah!" Fred agreed. "But I still have to figure out this stupid firecracker!" He voice rose in frustration. "It's just not working right!" He complained.

"They certainly have inherited our Quiddich skills," Ginny murmured from behind.
Harry turned around and smiled. "And my procrastination."
five.Five is the number of times you worry he’s stopped breathing, as the surgeons carve around his heart, twisting away the plaque ridden arteries, and pulling a vein out of his leg. Five is the number of heart wrenching hours you and your family were waiting in the hospital room, worried that your lives would crumble, that there would be five members of the family instead of six, that five days out of the week he would not come home for dinner, that five kisses from him would no longer be given to his wife and four children. Five was the amount of fingernails you bit off while watching people enter and exit the waiting room, and the amount of minutes your mother spent on the phone, explaining that something was wrong. Five is the critical difference between holding a father’s hand as your mother cries into his heart shaped pillow. The difference between rejoicing and smiling weakly because he’s okay or carrying your father’s American-flag-covered-casket and watchin
A Guide to Writing DialogueWhat is dialogue, exactly? The definition from Merriam-Webster’s dictionary was several lines long, so I shall summarize it in a short sentence for the sake of the readers; it’s the writing that illustrates conversations between two or more characters in a story. We read and hear it all around us, but creating it in your own work can be a challenge. However, if you find dialogue an obstacle in your writing, then don’t push the panic button. In this tutorial, you’ll find by analyzing what dialogue can do and how to use it, you can turn your greatest fear into your greatest ally in your story.
What dialogue is
Like I’ve asserted before, dialogue is basically what the characters are saying to each other. It can be found in multiple mediums such as books, movies, comics, video games, etc. We even engage in dialogue daily without even thinking.
